"BANNER OF THE CROSS"

Verse One:
There's a royal banner given for display
To the soldiers of the King;
As an ensign fair we lift it up today,
While as ransomed ones we sing.

Chorus:
Marching on, marching on,
For Christ count everything but loss.
And to crown Him King, [We'll]
Toil and sing [be]'neath the banner of the cross!

Verse Two:
Though the foe may rage and gather as the flood,
Let the standard be displayed;
And beneath its folds, as soldiers of the Lord,
For the truth be not dismayed!

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse Three:
Over land and sea, wherever man may dwell,
Make the glorious tidings known;
Of the crimson banner now the story tell,
While the Lord shall claim His Own!

[Repeat Chorus]

When the glory dawns, 'tis drawing very near,
It is hastening day by day,
Then before our King the foe shall disappear,
And the cross the world shall sway!

[Repeat Chorus]

And to crown Him King, [We'll]
Toil and sing be'neath the banner of the cross!
